Elegant Princess..

This card has taken me most of the day but I can happily say that there is definitely lots of stamping on this card!! I find sometimes by the time you have finished your card there is not a lot of stamping on it but this is not the case for this one and I even have some pics to show you what I first ever tutorial!! LOL!!

Firstly I coloured my background card using Distress Inks - Peeled Paint and Weathered Wood to fit in with the latest colour challenge over at Just Us Girls. I then sprayed it with some Perfect Pearls Mists - Perfect Pearl and dried that off with my heat gun.
Now I really liked the background pattern on the sketch I used which is over at The Paper Craft Crew so this got me thinking and I decided to make my own, to do this I used one of the stamps out of the KaiserCraft 'Botanical Odyssey' set and stamped it with my Jet Black Stayzon Ink.
Voila!! I have my background card which I am really happy with!! I must also admit I am not a 'crown' sort of person but you tend to get all these different stamps that you might not buy but they come in stamping sets and end up just sitting there so I decided to do something outside of the square and use them and there you have latest card. I am also adding this to the latest challenge over on Alota Rubber Stamps where they want you to make your own background and over at Just Add Ink who are having a blog hop and want you to use a Big Shot or something similar. I hope you like it and I am sorry to say my Stamp Camp is coming to the end. My last stamping bud is about to go home...back to reality...but it's not all bad as I am going out with my hubby for dinner and a movie as we will both be away at different times this week so won't really see each other until next Saturday. So I hope the rest of your weekend goes well and hopefully I will be back next week sometime...until then, Happy Stamping!!
